RealisticTiny Embroidered Animals by Chloe Giordano

Artist Tumblr

Chloe Giordano is a self-described “illustrator, avid reader, history lover and dreadful knitter” from Buckinghamshire, England. She may not be a great knitter, but her embroidery is more than up to par. Shown here are her tiny embroidered animals, done freehand. Giordano’s mixture of multiple colored threads adds detail and dimension

Russian artist Svetlana Petrova has an awesome marmalade cat named Zarathustra whom she photoshops into famous works of art. No matter the renown of the artist or beauty of the subject matter, Zarathustra’s ample tabby frame immediately becomes the hilarious center of attention. He melts alongside Dalí’s clocks, cuddles up to Vermeer’s milkmaid, da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine and Mona Lisa, and even Whistler’s Mother. We particularly love his use of modesty tail whilst lounging in Edouard Manet’s Olympia and the tip of the tail positioned in place of Adam’s hand in Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam.

Petrova is currently exhibiting artwork at The Barn at Stonehill House, in Abingdon, Oxfordshire in a show entitled Russian Extremes – From Icons to I-Cats. The show runs through June 5, 2014.

Follow the ongoing high art hijinks of Zarathustra at Svetlana Petrova’s website, Fat Cat Art.

Pallas’s cat is a small wild cat having a broad but patchy distribution in the grasslands and montane steppe of Central Asia. The species is negatively affected by habitat degradation, prey base decline, and hunting, and has therefore been classified as ‘Near Threatened’ by IUCN since 2002.

AHH! CanNOT wait for this to come out!!

i love the fact that a black woman directed this

Black woman director. Black woman writer. Black woman lead. Love this.

Everybody get the fuck out there and watch it. Take a friend. Take two friends. Go twice.

Remember:

Hollywood has a vested interest in watching this film fail.

Hollywood does not like leads who are not white men.

Hollywood tolerates writers who are not men, but not often.

Hollywood doesn’t like directors who aren’t white men, either, unless they’re Alfonso Cuaron, who is still a man.

Hollywood likes to prove that these are films that “people”—that means you, that means me—will not watch, so they can go back to making movies where the men are white and the women are props.

Make this film explode. Make it impossible to ignore. See it opening weekend and tell everyone you meet how it spoke to you and why.

Look for online reviews and leave comments. If your local newspaper has no critic section, write a letter to the editor. Tell a friend. Tell two friends. Tell your mother’s friends who like romcoms.

You can do something just by spending ten bucks and opening your mouth about it.

What are you doing? You’re encouraging visibility. You’re encouraging diversity. You’re encouraging women in an industry that’s very Good Ole Boys Club.

And also, you get to see what looks like it’s going to be one damned fine movie.
